Suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder? Need help with claiming against an employer in Ystalyfera?
There is a common misconception that PTSD or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is something that only soldiers or other personnel in the military suffer from; this is simply not the case. Many people in many walks of life may find themselves living with PTSD through no fault of their own and all because of an accident that has occurred at work which could have otherwise been avoided.
If you are one of these people and have suffered an accident at the expense of someone else’s negligence or perhaps failing health and safety practices, then you may be entitled to our help with claiming against an employer in Ystalyfera.
How does PTSD manifest itself?
PTSD can manifest itself in a number of ways and these can vary from individual to individual. We at Accident Advice Helpline have dealt with many cases of PTSD where the sufferers have experienced a variety of different symptoms that vary from person to person, but are overall part of the same condition. These can include severe anxiety or nervousness, suffering from severe headaches, emotional and physical exhaustion, bed-wetting, nightmares – the list is not an exhaustive one and as we have pointed out the symptoms can change from person to person.
If you have suffered an accident that has led to the suffering of PTSD in one of its many forms then you may well be eligible to start claiming against an employer in Ystalyfera.
My condition means I struggle to interact
As a PTSD sufferer you will find it difficult to interact with those around you as opposed to how you did before the accident. This, unfortunately, is a natural symptom of the condition and one that causes many people a great deal of distress which may lead to a deeper depression.
After an accident, it can be difficult enough to return to normality, and your workplace and our advisers here at Accident Advice Helpline know only too well how debilitating that can be. Likewise such an inability to communicate with those around you may have a profound effect on the way in which you are able to work, if you are able to work at all, and with this in mind you may be able to begin claiming against an employer in Ystalyfera if your condition renders you unable to be around others.
